MOBILE, AL (WSFA) -

What day is it? Guess what day it is? -- It's Hump Day! Whoop Whoop!

The headmaster of St. Luke's Episcopal School in Mobile has been facing that question ever since a Geico commercial featuring a camel went viral. The commercial has been viewed more than 16 million times on YouTube.

Mike Notaro says he was constantly bombarded by colleagues and students on Wednesdays. So, Wednesday he brought in a camel of his own to the school, WPMI-TV reports.

The camel's name is John Henry and he is 11 years old.

This week is Homecoming at the school and the headmaster said he wanted to make it special for the students and staff.
